Prayers for Lent Through Easter from The Divine Hours
$15.99
($19.00)
" A wise rabbi once told me that it is not how many prayers we don’ t say that matters to God, but rather how many we do. That is important to all of us, but especially for beginners. If this is your first attempt to return to this most ancient of Christian practices, it is wise to remember that you are entering into a discipline and, like all disciplines, this one sits hard and heavy upon one at times. There are hours you will miss and/or some that you can’ t even begin to figure out how to observe. That is all right, for either the joy will carry you into greater joy and transmute the discipline into privilege, or you will find yourself simply the wiser and the richer for such experience as you have had. As the rabbi said, that is what matters ultimately."
In her acclaimed trilogy," The Divine Hours," Phyllis Tickle introduced modern Christians to the time-honored practice of " praying the hours." In this exquisite new volume, she provides a vibrant program of prayer dedicated to the anticipation of Christ’ s resurrection.
Beginning with Ash Wednesday and moving through Lent and on to Easter Sunday, "Eastertide" provides the daily prayers that bring practitioners into the full spirit of this season. Each day is filled with psalms, readings from the Bible, and hymns of praise and worship, just as they appear in the larger volume, "The Divine Hours: Prayers for Springtime," Newcomers to this beloved tradition will find that "Eastertide" is the perfect introduction to joining the ancients in the tradition of fixed-hour prayer.
